GREELEY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa officials are investigating reports that dead fish have been found along nearly 20 miles of a creek in eastern Iowa.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says carcasses were found in and along Plum Creek from Greeley to Earlville. They included those of smallmouth and rock bass.

Chief investigator Brian Jergenson says the fish likely died during and after a July 13 rainstorm. He also says it's difficult to pin down a specific source several days after a pollutant washes into a stream.
